Bipolar - A bipolar driver's output current direction can be changed. 100% of the winding is utilized in the bipolar drive. That means the two sets of the coils in each phase can be connected either in series or in parallel to become one set of a coil. Current direction changed from the driver creates another mechanical phaseThe number of mechanical phases is always twice the number of electrical phases. Bipolar drivers provides 40% more holding torque than unipolar drives. Unipolar - A unipolar driver's output current direction cannot be changed. There are two sets of the coils for each phase in a motor. Only one set of the coils can be energized at a time. Each coil represents one phase. Therefore, only 50% of the winding is utilized in the unipolar drive. The number of mechanical phases equals the number of electrical phases. Due to the fact unipolar drivers only use 50% of the windings, the performance ranges from low to moderate. The benefit of this is that it doesn't generate too much heat, very durable and inexpensive.
